SEMINARS ARE LOCATED AT BOOTH A75

Intro to Tuna Fishing

Capt. Phil Howarth, Owner Goose Hummock

Capt. Phil’s tuna adventure started 12 years ago and he is now a self-confessed tuna addict, Capt. Phil will explain the rules, regulations and reporting requirements surrounding tuna fishing which can appear to be a minefield. He will discuss how to equip your boat with the right fishing and safety equipment, as well as share tips on how to catch this majestic species.

Chasing Albies

Ian McPartland

Whilst they might not be around for long, albie fever kicks in hard when these torpedoes arrive off the Cape in mid-August. However, 2022 was a stellar year when they stayed around till the end of October. Learn techniques on how to target them, approach a feed quietly, often from a small boat or kayak and of course which baits to use to maximize your chances.

Back Bay Stripers

Capt. Jake Howarth, Goose Hummock

From schoolies to monsters it’s surprising what lurks in the back bays of Cape Cod. These are places for stealth—using a kayak, SUP or small skiff to get into the shallow waters to catch the stripers that are preying on the sandeels, chubs, herring and more, that think they are safe in the marsh. Capt. Jake will share his knowledge of tackle, lures, and techniques to venture up stream.

Trolling for Tuna

Capt. Kevin Albohn, Blue Line Charters

Learn about mid-shore trolling for bluefin and yellowfin tuna, as well as mahi and wahoo, with discussion ranging from patterns, tackle, rods, and reels, to running spreads on everything from small center consoles to large sportfishing boats.

If you fish for mid-shore tuna, you do not want to miss this.

Fishing in Cape Cod Bay

Captain Steve Leary, Wingman

Sportsfishing Charters, Barnstable Harbor

Trolling for Tuna

Capt. Dave Adams, Tormentor Tackle

Based in Florida, Capt. Dave is more used to trolling for mahi, yellowfin and wahoo, but don’t let that deceive you. He started his career out of Glouster and has caught hundreds of giant bluefin. This seminar will review the spread, discuss baits vs lures, and the importance of your baits’ color and size. Dave will discuss what to do from the moment a fish hits your bait through to bringing the fish on board your boat.

Cape Cod Underwater

Bill Hurley, Hurley Lures

We all spend our time on top of the water, but what’s happening underneath? Bill has been diving the waters of Cape Cod for over 30 years and offers a fantastic insight into how the fish see and react to your offering, with video footage to back it up.

Targeting Tog

Capt. Matt Whittle, Goose Hummock

Lure Fishing for Stripers

Patrick Sebile, ABOA

Patrick has hundreds of world records and has caught nearly 800 species of fish. That said, he has a soft spot for the striped bass. Patrick will guide you through his tackle box to discuss the wide range of lures available including top waters, bucktails, soft plastics, trolling plugs, jerk baits. The art is to understand when and what lure to pick up and use for the best results on any given day.

Fishing Options for a Small Boat Owner on Cape Cod

Jig and Pop for Tuna

Capt. Chris Blake, Unreel Sportsfishing Charters

Capt. Chris spends his summer chasing bluefin tuna with clients in his Contender 27, as a specialist in jigging and casting to these wonderful fish Chris will discuss the gear he uses and why, what clues to look for when locating fish, how to approach them and of course how to catch them.

8

Trolling for Tuna

Capt. Phil Howarth, Owner Goose Hummock

Trolling is a fantastic way to fish for bluefin tuna—it keeps the whole crew busy and can be hypnotic as you watch your spread splash around in the wake of the boat, then the adrenalin pumping starts as a fish crashes onto your bar, the line snaps out of the outrigger and your drag screams!! Phil will run through how to set up your boat, how you should manage your spread and how you and your crew need to respond to that screaming reel!

Fishing in the Summer Heat

Capt. John Daley, Goose Hummock

Heading into the heat of July and August, stripers, especially in Cape Cod Bay, become lethargic and crave the deeper holes and edges. John has spent a lifetime targeting these fish as a mate on charter boats and will share his knowledge of the gear and how to tempt these lazy fish into striking your bait.

The Art of the Deep Drop—Daytime Swordfishing in the Northeast Canyons

Capt. John Clothier, Fish Chatham Charters

Vertical Jigging

Capt. Jack Houghton, Daddy Mac Lures

Vertical jigging is a popular technique to catch a variety of fish, not just striped bass. When you use the correct technique and equipment, you will out fish the boat next to you every time. Capt. Jack will explain the gear and the techniques to use to maximize your time on the fishing grounds.
